Abstract

Examined the importance of food information transfer in communally roosting Cathartes aura in S Ontario. Feeding trials failed to provide evidence of recruitment due to information transfer. Earlier arrivals on 2nd days were more likely due to local enhancement rather than information transfer since the size of groups arriving at food patches did not differ between the 2 days. -from Authors
